No progress on probe in theft case even after four months — 1 Comment

  1. It is a very strange case where investigation is being carried out prior to the registration of FIR. As per law i.e. Criminal Procedure Code 1898, investigation can only be carried out after registration of case. No Police officer is authorized to carry out investigation prior to FIR. And he is duty bound to register it immediately when a cognizable offence is reported, further FIR should be launched at once rather than this much delay. It is high time that DPO sb should take notice of it (unless Chitral has some of its own criminal procedure code by which investigation is carried out first and then FIR registered).
